Beinn Udlaidh

Today I was working for adventure Peaks again. We went into a quite busy Beinn udlaidh. As usual most of the crowds were over on Quartzvein round to Green Eyes. We desided on Central Gully so we could continue on what we covered yesterday. Alister did a good job leading the first 2 pitches (Angela was not herself today), and I took the easy stretch to the top. There is a fantastic 10m ice slab to be climbed instead of following the gully direct which leads you back to the main route. It is easy to avoid the bulk of it, which looks like most people have been doing. On the way in we spotted a short steep looking fall on the right of the corrie, so we came back down to this. It offered some steep excellent climbing around grade 4ish (I can't grade) on blue ice. this was an great way to rap up the weekend.

Adventure Peaks offer a wide range of courses, most notably there greater ranges expeditions. check out the website for more info.
